Post Rock

When I say post rock, I'm thinking of bands like Mogwai, Explosions in the Sky, and Godspeed You Black Emperor. Those are the top 3 in my mind. I'm pretty much looking to find more post rock type bands. Any recommendations?

HUGE FAN.

Mogwai, Explosions in the Sky, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Sigur Rós, Múm, Mono (Japanese post-rock)... yadda yadda. Not going to prove my "scene-ness"

Great to see a fellow fan.

Mogwai seems cool.
Does anyone know how Mogwai are live? I'm going to see them tomorrow, so was just wondering.

On subject,

Pelican (more metal-ish)
Sigur Ros
Slint
Talk Talk
A Silver Mt. Zion
Mono
Bark Psychosis
Do Make say Think
Tortoise
Port-Royal

All range from good to exceptional.

Yeah, get some Pelican in you. One of the few post-rock bands that retained my interest.

Recommendations? People have covered a lot of stuff released in the past few years (apart from Grace Cathedral Park and Detwiije), but if you want some recent releases, check out the Belegost/The Sea, Like Lead split and Russian Circles 'Enter', and look out for 'Give me beauty... give me death' by Ef and 'If That Is What Is Being Thought...' by Té

how good are good are mono? i mean seriously just an amazing band. Can't believe i only own one of thier records. Awesome

as are EITS, definitely my two favourite 'post-rock' bands

edit: i am a absolute prick for not remembering Godspeed, i have Slow Riots for the New Zero Kanada Ep and it's just. wow. 'Totally' just had a 'moment' listening to it now. Gorgously epic and powerful

I concur; Spiderland is possibly the greatest record of all time.

The only band that come close for me are ISIS, and although they are technically post-metal, you could do worse than check them out. Their album Oceanic is immense.

ISIS are epic. Seriously. Oceanic is awesome, but Panopticon really shows their maturity. And it's got a really creepy theme to it.

Isis are not post rock. But yes they do kick ass.

Lately, I've been digging (in terms of post rock): Red Sparowes, Mono, Sigur Ros, Explosions, ...Of Sinking Ships, and 65daysofstatic

I've heard them described as post-metal, which is really the same thing to metal as post-rock is to rock... related, at least. Red Sparowes are an Isis sideproject anyway, so if he digs the Sparowes, he might like Isis

65daysofstatic are great.

^65daysofstatic are the fricking best.

Love em to bits.

God Is an Astronaut is another cool post-rock band that hasn't been mentioned. Plus they're Irish.
